Praise for the first edition:
"Although O'Reilly's Nutshell series are intended as 'DesktopReference' manuals, I have to recommend this one as a goodall-round read; not only as a primer for LPI certification, but as anexcellent introductory text on GNU/Linux. In all, this is a valuableaddition toO'Reilly's already packed stable of Linux titles and I look forward tomore from the author."--First Monday
